Chelsea have made their first move for Inter Milan defender Achraf Hakimi this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Thomas Tuchel is already planning his targets to bring to Stamford Bridge and Hakimi is reported to be on the Blues radar. 

The 22-year-old is also the subject of interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, both Chelsea and PSG have made offers of around €60 million for Hakimi.

Inter are in a position where they need to offload several players this summer due to their poor financial position and Hakimi could be the star to bring in the required revenue. 

Fabrizio Romano also claimed that Chelsea had been in touch with Hakimi's agent in recent days, as Inter hold out for €80 million.

Di Marzio's report also suggests Chelsea duo Emerson Palmieri and Andreas Christensen could be included in a potential deal. 

What Thomas Tuchel has said on new signings this summer

“Two or three could be very, very good. It’s a constant thing to never deny change; that you always bring new energy, new guys who question the old beliefs, who challenge everybody in the training and in matches, so I think it’s a good thing.

"We don’t need another seven and another complete turnover because it’s also our job to keep on improving, because we have still a young squad and it’s not about stealing from them the chance to prove it again, that they are capable of growing and evolving. But we have some ideas, of course, to make the group stronger, and I think this can always be a positive thing to challenge all of us."
